The American Cancer Society estimated that 18,500 people (10,620 men and 7,880 women) would be diagnosed with brain cancer and that 12,760 men and women would die of it in 2005.
A person's prognosis will depend on:
- The type of brain cancer (see Types of Brain Tumors)
- The size and location of brain cancer
- The brain cancer stage
- The brain cancer grade.
